With the exception of Pasquini's Pizzeria
, the South Broadway dining scene has long been a wasteland. But the block north of Pasquini's is quickly becoming a foodie haven, enough so that Platt Park residents (already endowed with gems like Sushi Den
, Pajama Baking Company
, and Gaia Bistro
) are wandering over.
They browse for wine at Divino Wine & Spirits
, dine on steak frites at Bistro One
, and peruse the shelves at Urban Pantry
. This months-old shop's well-edited selection of gourmet goodies--such as artisanal farmstead cheeses, Route 11 Potato Chips, and Chardonnay-infused
peanut brittle--is an exciting neighborhood addition. Choose from made-to-order baguette sandwiches, or pick up a hostess gift of special tapenade or honey. Either way, owner Alexandra Failmezger
, a New York City native and former restaurant professional, will help guide you through the shop's 700-plus items.
Stop by on a Saturday for a product tasting.
